The mystical
Madagascar Island
  The Spice island. Zanzibar holiday   The spectacular
Victoria Falls
Wildlife Safari
Trekking Safaris
Madagascar island holidays is a popular new destination   Zanzibar beach holidays   Victoria Falls one of the worlds three greatest waterfalls   Masai dancing in Amboseli Park in front of Mt Kilimanjaro   Male Silver back Mountain Gorillas of Rwanda - gorilla safaris

Almost everything is strangely different on the Madagascar islands - the wildlife, the plants,  the Tsingy rock formations, everything you'll see and touch on your Madagascar island holiday is seldom found anywhere else.
Consider a 12 day Pangalanes canal adventure.
This is a new holiday frontier to which you will return again & again.

  There is so much more to do on a Zanzibar holiday than just relaxing on a white beach.  Explore the history of Stone Town, the Sultans of Zanzibar, the Sultans palace, the House of Wonders and the Slave Trade market.  Enjoy a fascinating guided spice island tour  while bargaining for some interesting tropical island mementos.   We offer Victoria Falls holiday fly in 3 day 2 night packages from Johannesburg.  An ideal add-on to your South African holiday.

Victoria Falls activities include -
Helicopter flights over the falls, white water rafting, elephant back safaris, African culture Boma dinner, river cruises, Bungee jumping, etc.
  The Kenya wildlife is world famous. Safaris originated in Kenya back in the colonial days.  The word Safari simply means 'journey' in the local Swahili language.
  An hour spent with a Mountain Gorilla family is a very tranquil & relaxing form of therapy.

Mountain Gorillas are only found on the border with Rwanda, Uganda & Congo. They are both the largest and most endangered of all Gorilla species.  I believe they are also the most handsome with their thick coats to protect them from the cold up in the mountains forests.
